Trend Alert: Gatsby Glamour
Gatsby fever has taken over this season, with opulence of the 1920s roaring back into style. We’ll be seeing lots of classic drop waists, sequined finishes and chandelier jewellery, thanks to Baz and his girls Daisy, Myrtle, Catherine and Jordan.
The glitz and the glamour of the jazz age are easy to recreate in the modern day – decadent crystal-laden jewellery (earrings, necklaces, headbands) the easiest way to turn an ordinary LBD into a luxe look, while dresses and capes adorned with beads and sequins turn heads in the evening.
